SWAZI CONSUL QUITS IN PROTEST

Flemming Jørgensen, Swaziland’s consul in Denmark, has quit his position, because of the rampant corruption in Swaziland’s government, according to Africa Contact’s Morten Nielsen, According to Nielsen.

Africa Contact, who were due to hold a protest outside the consul’s house in Copenhagen on Friday, had also previously campaigned to pressure the consul to resign his position over Swaziland’s abysmal human rights record and its political prisoners, although it is not known whether this campaign has had any bearing on Flemming Jørgensen’s decision to resign his post.
